Local Validation Requirements

Review of the Local Requirements for the validation of planning applications​

Northampton Borough Council’s Local Validation Requirements list is reviewed every two years, with the aim of ensuring that the information that applicants for planning permission are asked to provide is proportionate.​

The latest review of the requirements took place earlier this year and the new draft requirements were subject to a public consultation between 16th March and 11th May 2017.

Following on from this consultation the draft requirements were considered by the Planning Committee on 4 July 2017 who resolved that the requirements would be formally adopted.

The revised Local Validation Requirements have therefore been adopted by the council for the validation of all new planning applications received from 1st August 2017 and you can view them on the link below:​
